Lisa T.

Childbirth Educator Birth Doula
I came to birth work on the other side of giving birth to my two babies in 2005 and 2008. Along that journey, my eyes were opened to a few things: 1) how beautiful, normal, and transformative the process of birth is but 2) how too many women and couples have a negative or, worse, traumatic experience in giving birth due to the way our U.S. maternal health care system operates. On the other side of being fortunate enough to have become well-equipped to navigate this environment and therefore having positively transformative experiences with both of my babies' births, I "caught the birth bug" and wanted to be an instrument of encouragement and advocacy for women and families toward amazing, positive birth experiences, and I've been joyfully doing birth work ever since 2010. One area of particular passion I have in my teaching is placing specific emphasis on helping couples to deepen and enrich their relationships in pregnancy to be strategically positioned in a healthy way for the challenges and stresses having a baby can put on a marriage/committed relationship.

Jessica V.

Pregnancy Coach Postpartum Doula Lactation Counselor (CLC) Childbirth Educator Birth Doula Birth Counselor Antepartum Doula
Hi....I'm MomTown. And I am here for you. I want to take care of you as you plan for your baby’s arrival, to educate you on what birth can be, be with you while you are having your baby, and be there for you when you bring your baby home (and for lots of time beyond). I'm also very invested in your mental well-being along the way. Because I know taking the time to have your needs met gives you strength to take care of your family. MomTown is for moms. MomTown is for dads. MomTown is for people who are curious about being parents. MomTown is for non-binary parents who don't go by mom or dad. MomTown is for gender fluid parents who go by both mom and/or dad (and every other name they choose to be called). MomTown is for people who identify as unicorns. MomTown is for people who believe the moon landing was a US government conspiracy (though I'll probably argue with you about that). Basically, MomTown is for everyone. I am a certified birth and postpartum doula, Certified Lactation Counselor and Childbirth Educator in training. I am also currently pursuing a Masters in Social Work, focusing on both perinatal mental health and family leave policy development. I volunteer for Postpartum Support International as a helpline operator.

Grace V.

Postpartum Doula Newborn/Parenting Educator Lactation Counselor (CLC) Childbirth Educator
I have been fascinated by the process of pregnancy, birth and lactation since I was a little girl. I got to fulfill my dream and start learning about those subjects during my first doula training in 2002. I became certified in 2007 after another training, and have worked with parents ever since, going full time as a "birth worker" in 2015, after the birth of my 2nd daughter. That is when the world of postpartum support was opened to me and I love it. Being with new parents as they get to know their babies is one of my greatest joys. I also love to teach prenatal education and help them prepare for what's ahead: birth, breast/chestfeeding and newborn care. I love my role in easing the way into this tremendous transformation of becoming a newborn family.

maeva a.

Pregnancy Coach Hypnotherapist Childbirth Educator Birth Doula
I am a HypnoBirthing® Childbirth Educator, a Spinning Babies® Parent Educator, a hypnotherapist and a birth doula. I became a certified Hypnotist in 2009. I always knew the mind and body are interconnected. As I prepared for my own transition into motherhood, I discovered HypnoBirthing - the Mongan Method. Through this practice, and as I worked with parents, I organically grew into birth doula work. After witnessing a particularly difficult birth, I found and trained in the Spinning Babies approach. My doula work completely changed after that. I learnt how to assess when there was an imbalance and help balance the body before and during birth. I continue to learn with every new birth and every parent I work with. I am motivated by my own experiences and inspired by the experiences of the parents I work with.

Chantal T.

Yoga Instructor Pregnancy Coach Postpartum Doula Newborn/Parenting Educator Health Coach Fitness Coach Childbirth Educator Birth Doula Birth Counselor
I am an active birth doula, childbirth educator, pre/postnatal yoga teacher and MUTU® Systems trainer. I have been assisting expecting families in the New York Metro area since 2003. What I have found from going to hundreds of births is that women are often under prepared for the 2nd Stage of Labor; The Pushing Part. Which may contribute to many hours of ineffective pushing, preventable tearing, medical interventions or sometimes a cesarean. I developed my Pushing Power classes to help inform and prepare for effective pushing and optimal recovery. I am passionate about helping moms prepare both body + mind for a positive birth experience and assist them to make a full recovery postpartum. I am a Certified Childbirth Educator (LAMAZE and Childbirth Education of Metropolitan New York, of which I am a current board member) and Doula. I am also Certified in both Pre/Postnatal Yoga and is a Certified MUTU® Systems Pro.
